Absolutely devastated today when I got into central London and my Nikon had no battery, however I didn’t let this stop me taking photos at the Vintage, Classic Car boot Sale with my iPhone! South Bank is always busy with crowds of people, there are often street artists down by the river and the South Bank Centre and the BFI often have exhibitions. After saying goodbye to our friend Sarah, Lauren and I headed to the South Bank centre to check out the vintage fair.
The car boot sale was cordoned off and it was £3 for entry into a assortment of stalls where there was vintage clothes, tea sets, records and a huge range of different food stalls selling everything from macaroni cheese to afternoon tea, served from cute caravans and retro vans!
Following a stroll down the river we headed across to St. Paul’s for a little shopping and a cocktail up on the roof terrace at Madison, which gave us a gorgeous view of the sunset just behind the cathedral! The food in the restaurant at Madison looked incredible, however we felt it was a little pricey for us, £5 for olives (so pricey) didn’t wet our taste buds at all. A cosmo and an apfrel spritzer went down an absolute treat, and after chatting to the manager who was making some incredible looking hot, coffee cocktails, he brought us over an amazing cocktail (yeah, forgotten the name). It was very sweet, yet the crushed mint gave it a little flavoursome kick and a refreshing aftertaste.
I would love to go back to Madison for a special occasion, there were groups of people having meals and celebrating birthdays, in their glad rags looking a little more impressive than me and Lauren. The St. Paul’s area is fab, the view was gorgeous, the cocktails were tasty and the shops were no where near as busy as Oxford Street, absolutely idea for a chilling Saturday!
